Ok. Here's the story. My mother was at a friend's house and saw a lemon in his tree. She said look! That lemon looks like an elephant! So he picked the lemon and gave it to her. She showed it to me and I was shocked at how much it looks like an elephant. The pictures are not that clear because it's a cheapo(free) camera that came with my DSL package. I think this lemon is pretty rare. I want to preserve it but have no idea how. It's in the fridge now and it's still in good shape. Anyway with no further adeu...

Here it is! The Amazing Dumbo Lemon!

It's... a deformed lemon.

Not really cryptozoology. Moved to a more suitable category.

     Thanks. I know it's deformed but it looks a lot like an elephant and the camera I used doesn't do it justice.

Quick, before it rots, sell it on Ebay.  That's about all you can do with it... besides make lemonade.

Embrace the impossible.

Actually, that's a good idea.
Infact, say it looks like Jesus. You'll make a small fortune.
And i'm not joking.

That is a damn good idea. The Virgin Mary toast comes to mind.

   Well it should keep for weeks in the refrigerator and I'm going to contact someone who knows how to preserve it. Maybe put it in formaldehyde or something. I was thinking of putting it on Ebay but I have to really advertise it so someone would pay a lot of money for it. I posted this on Art Bell's web site and hope he puts it up.

    Maybe some strange elephant worshiping cult will spend millions on it. Then I could truly say, "I took a lemon and made lemonade!" original.gif

    When I first saw it I said to my mother that you could put it on Ebay. I saw that grilled cheese sandwich that looked like The Virgin Mary go for what, $30,000. Hell I suspect an elephant-shaped lemon to fetch at leas ten grand!

  Hehe. Yea I could say it's actually the ass Jesus' folks rode. Probably make a mint off it. Actually when I turn it a certain way, it looks like a hand flipping someone off.
